Coffee table made of oak with walnut splines on the legs. Finished with polyacrlyic and enamel. This thing is very heavy kept the box close to 7/8 thick and used biscuits for the miters and splines on the legs. Painted the inside bright blue so I wouldn’t have to worry about glue lines on the joints.
A little back story on the wood, a machine shop next to the cabinet shop I work at was getting liquidated after one of the owners past away.The liquidators were going to throw away a whole unit of rough-sawn oak that was 5/4 thick. I manged to catch them as they had it over the dumpster with the fork lift.
